Five of my favorite links on the topic of genetic arts:

one guys fairly l-systems generator. the download gives more information to how these things work. also has good book recommendations.

A good definition of artifical life. This info is very helpful for creating simulated natural systems.

Tons of info about evolution, artificial life, cellular automata, chaos theory. My project pertains to the L-Systems portions and this is a great resource.

Basic information about l-systems and how to describe natural objects using patterns and a predefined grammar. This uses turtle geometry for creating 3d objects.

A whole lab at MIT dedicated to artificial intelligence. I have a bad feeling they've got nerds burning the midnight oils making weird creatures that will ultimately lead to the destruction of the human race.
